Extras

This section contains several subsections appropriately separated by content type. These include very lengthy non-campaign playthroughs of games that aren't condensed into compilations nor do they belong in the LP section, such as Civilization games. Additionally, there are one-off development, rant, or review-related videos, some of which were produced during minor projects or upon request.

 

MELEE RUNS

 

Without a more sufficient name, game playthroughs focused on "skirmish" or "random" modes, such as those from Civilization or Heroes of Might and Magic. I tend to play on large maps with prolonged domination settings, seeking a lengthy and fulfilling experience. Recommended only for the more patient viewer seeking a relaxed, and often times extremely politically incorrect, experience.

 

 

Civilization 5

 

I play Civ 5 games in Marathon with only Domination victory conditions and they are often accompanied with bitter babbling and silly racial commentary.

These videos are universally recorded in half size with a CRF of 30. MadVR is basically mandatory for fullscreen viewing at an acceptable quality. My primary goal in encoding was to preserve the ability to read most text, but keep the sizes rather small. For this reason I am not bothering to list most size/length specifications. I'll get around to it when I polish the site and sync things up.

This game was not completed for reasons that should be clear at the end.

This game is incredibly stupid.

 

 




HoMM6 Melee Games
Image

1920x1200, X264/MP3


Notes - These are not campaign LP's, but rather individual melee games. This game has no RMG, and thus alone warrants passing it as a purchase. Additionally, replay value is very low, so I only played two games as of this writing.

The game does weird shit with the audio stack in windows, e.g. it tries to bypass it entirely, making recording game audio extremely difficult.


Individual segments for games average 1-1:20 hours.

Game 1

Download Game 1 Part 2 - 1.3gb
Download Game 1 Part 3 - 1.3gb
Download Game 1 Part 4 - 1.2gb

Notes - I am unaware of the game audio issues during this recording, so enjoy my breathing. Additionally, this was my first time playing since 2 or so games in Beta, so this is mostly a learning experience. A very painful one. The AI in this game is idiotic.

It wasn't Glories that pheo was talking about. It was elementals. :3

Download Game 2 Part 5 - 1.4gb

Notes - I was concerned about the game audio during this recording but it turned out better than expected. I also appear to be eating a dick at random periods during the game. Near the end of Seg 1 there is around a minute of idle time. Use this to take a piss or something.

* I wasn't aware of this at the time, but I'm sure it was the non-racial units in my army that prevented waterwalking.
* Those aren't pit fiends, they're Juggernauts.
* For the longest time I didn't realize that all heals in 6 actually straight up revive monsters now (for some reason I haven't seen that revive symbol enough times to get the hint). So, I wasted a few talents (e.g. reinforcements) that could have gone into making healing a lot stronger. Also, after this game, I realized that prime magic can be used to boost other magic trees and make them not as terrible. Too bad the maps and AI are so awful I don't feel like playing the game at all to try any build ideas. Maybe I will, but probably not.


 

 


 


AI Rant Edition 2
Download - 2.3gb, 4:27 hour running length
720p/x264/mp3

An old AI rant video created on the spot via request some years ago. It isn't particularly thorough and I missed a lot of stuff, but it is thorough enough that you should get a kick out of it. Covers Brood War, Warcraft 3, and Starcraft 2. In Brood War I demonstrate the vanilla AI and talk a bit about the scripts themselves, while in Warcraft 3 I allow the game to speak for itself. In Starcraft 2 I set the AI against itself and then challenge its hardest difficulties in several matchups to demonstrate its colossal flaws and false advertising. Can a D- player like me defeat the hardest AI blizzard has ever made, mano-a-mano, in one of the most dynamic sc2 matchups?

 

Note that some of the things discussed in this video, particularly for Brood War, are probably inaccurate, but are based on the only research conducted by any individuals involved with the scene at the time, and didn't benefit from newer (2017+) reverse engineering insights since the video was created many years prior.

Butt Wars series

A small compilation series for Guild Wars 2 (and a bit of the first game) produced during 2012. The conventions for the version sorting are... bizarre, but I've opted to leave them as-is.

Counter-Strike Source Test Compilations

While conducting science I sometimes take recordings of my test and arrange them in a manner that provokes the sensation of humor.

Brood War Custom insane AI Demonstrations
Download - ~450mb
Note - This is a Youtube rip that has been reprocessed somewhat. It uses the VP8 video codec. Tested to function in MPC.

 

 

A video released in 2010 that discusses Brood War custom insane-type AI's produced with scaiedit. This video had difficulties on youtube with audio censorship and the source files were lost to a hard drive file table rollover. I have since successfully ripped uncensored video files from youtube, but Google refused to let me have the source files still on their servers.

Episode 1 - The Apex AI

I discuss the long road it took to reach the end of 2015, the functions behind Apex's various AI iterations and why the U variant was pivotal in enabling the project concept.

 

Episode 1 - Intro to B&D

I introduce the Build & Destroy concept and show 0x05, the test map that killed the previous iterations of the project.

 

Scrapped Retribution Production Videos

Test videos for the Black Sun: Retribution project, showcasing an advancement of the project's work and some related assessments for those presentations.

 

RTD Test video

Showcases some of the ship meshes made for the project inside Unreal 4.

 

These test videos were created during Retribution's 2012 Q4 - 2014 Q1 production, along with an extremely lengthy video documentary of the project's production life. Due to lack of viewer interest, however, only the test videos are currently on the FTP.

Legacy Black Sun Videos

 

Black Sun: Salvation
AKA "Episode 1". This mediocre machinima was originally posted on youtube in 2011. It has little standing value, but if you want to see Sins look and sound a little different then this is for you.

Length - 52 minutes

Main Encode - Download - 3.7gb
1080p/x264/FLAC

This is the prime encode of Black Sun. I gave it the highest quality settings I could without bloating the size too much. I had no AAC encode option for the audio at the time so I dumped it to FLAC because lol.



Micro Encode - Download - 560mb
720p/x264/mp3 320

This is a re-encode of the above version on Medium settings (used in some LP's). There will definitely be a quality drop. It's also downsized to 720p.

 


The Making of Salvation - Download - 2gb
720p/h264/AAC 192 - 3:45 hours

A nearly 4 hour video produced shortly after the release of Salvation that discusses the production of Salvation and walks through the project as a whole. Once youtube-only, the file has been ripped from youtube and placed on the FTP, as I lost the source file during the file table rollover disaster.
